What a wonderful story of mystery....danger....learning one's destiny... above all else love. Liz finds herself intrigued with a handsome man who lures her away from her friends only to find herself attacked by a vampire. Michael had only planned to feed from Liz but also found there was something else about her that drew her to him. What neither counted on was her turning into a vampire after the one and only bite from Michael. Because of the vampire laws Michael is forced to take Liz and go before the vampire council. That is just the beginning of their journey. Through Liz's time staying with the council she learns of others planning on war against the council. She is forced to run with Michael and they take the only friend Liz has made while there with them. They move around to stay hidden and make plans on what they need to do to keep the war from happening and if they can't.... they prepare for war. Liz learns many things along the way about who she is and what her family has kept from her all her life. Like the fact that she comes from a line of witches and there is a prophecy told and Liz is a major player in that prophecy. Liz is destined to become leader and Queen of the vampire nation. I don't want to give too much away here...need to save it for the reader to discover. Willow Cross did a fantastic job of telling her story. It was interesting from the very beginning. The cast of characters that complete this story were all such an asset to the overall storyline. I really enjoyed what Liz's went through in order to find her place in the world of vampires. And it has only just began. I was given a copy of this for an honest review.
